There's a lot of waiting when you are on the adoption journey. You apply, you do paperwork, you send it all over the country, and you wait for it to be finalized. We haven't even gotten to the REALLY hard part of waiting - waiting for a referral for a child.
I'm a 7 on the enneagram which means I loooooove distractions. One of the ways I'm trying to keep myself busy (and focused on something other than the waiting) is by planning a garden. For years I've wanted to plant a cut-flower garden and I'm finally working toward that goal.
The amazing part about a garden is that you can plant bulbs as the temperatures drop and the greenery around you is turning brown and dying. There's such hope that life is at work even in the chill (and waiting!) of winter.
Because of my flower obsession, I was delighted to discover that we could run a flower fundraiser. If you'd also like to plan a garden, you can shop gorgeous tulip bulbs (and much more) at Flower Power and we will receive 50% of the profits.
If you're a newbie gardener like me, I've learned a lot from the Farmer's Almanac. Here's everything you need to know about planting tulips.
